Made some genuine progress on the Flakvierling 38.
I had no idea how inaccurate this kit was until I started looking for reference pics.
First thing was to build a new base, the kit one is very wrong and it's fixed to the trailer so no way to deploy it?
The lovely brass Aber barrels arrived, can't wait to see them on it, I also made some ammo mags, lots to go yet.

Looks like the old ESCI kit ? great job on bringing it up to snuff...

Impressive! Beautiful job on that new base.

Nice work Tim. Am curious, did you scratch-build the ammo magazines? If so, how did you go about creating the curved line pattern on the surface of the magazines? Beautifully detailed work you've done here.

Cheers,
Peter
